Postcards from November

The fall is pretty much over at this point, I'm afraid. Winter's setting in fast and tight and now's the time I wish I had a plan, but never I do. Never I do. This slideshow is composed of some of the shots I took over the last few weeks on the rare occasion where I stumbled out of bed, from the end of October into early November.

The images were all captured on a Canon EOS 50D frame and a Canon image-stabilized, ultra-sonic telescopic zoom lens - either the EF-S 17-85mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM or the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM.

This slideshow features a song by Bon Iver called "Skinny Love" off of the album For Emma, Forever Ago.

Amazon Customer Review:

"It is often mentioned that this album was written over the course of 4 wintry months in a Wisconsin cabin. Stereotyping the quiet solitude of this album on its origins is unfair, however: this isn't just one of those singer/songwriter efforts you hear about some guy writing on his own out in the woods; it is the epitome of a singer/songwriter recording the heartfelt musings of life in isolation. "

The images are compiled into a 6 Meg (2:27 Adobe Flash slideshow (11November.swf) that you should be able to open and view with any browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.). To view the slideshow, just click on the photo above. If you want to view the slideshow as a Windows executable, you can play this version (11November.exe), and it allows you to play, pause, skip forward, backwards, etc.

Image post-processing was done in Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended. The slideshow was created using Imagematics Stillmotion Pro.

Skinny Love by Bon Iver


C'mon skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt we were never here
My my my my my my my my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My my my my my my my my
Right in the moment this order's tall

I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
In the morning i'll be with you
But it will be a different "kind"
I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines

C'mon skinny love what happened here
Suckle on the hope in lite brazziere
My my my my my my my my
Sullen load is full; so slow on the split

I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
Now all your love is wasted?
Then who the hell was i?
Now i'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?
